It’s official: This is the year to treat yourself.

Ok, it may not be official, but we think treating yourself is a great idea. In fact, treating yourself is scientifically proven to improve your mental health and overall well-being.

So, how should you treat yourself ?

Check out this guide to discover the top fun things to splurge on this year.

1. Hire a Housekeeping Service

Hiring a housekeeping service is one of the best ways to treat yourself.

The average American spends over 6 hours per week cleaning their home. And, 28 percent of Americans spend 7 hours or more per week cleaning their home. Imagine what you could do with an extra 6 or 7 hours!

This is really a double treat yourself, as not only does hiring this housekeeping service cut down the time you need to spend cleaning each week, but it also gives you more time to sleep in, go for a long run, go shopping, or do whatever it is you’d rather be doing!

2. Redecorate Your Space

Creating a space that feels special can work wonders for your well-being. If you don’t have the money to redecorate your entire home, pick one room to focus on and figure out how you can make it more comfortable.

You can get your creative juices flowing by searching Pinterest boards, then you can hit the shops to bring your vision to life. Not only will a new space refresh your well-being, but the whole process of redecorating will also be a really fun creative outlet.

3. Take Yourself on a Date

There’s no doubt about it- dating these days is really hard. So, why not take yourself out on a date?

Whether it’s checking out a new museum exhibit, dining out at your favorite restaurant, or enjoying wine and a movie, taking yourself on a date can do wonders for your mental health. It can also help you recharge your batteries when you need a much-needed break from socializing.

4. Go on a Trip

Without a doubt, traveling is one of the best ways to treat yourself.

Whether it’s a solo trip to France or a weekend girls’ trip to a lake cabin, taking time away is a great way to recharge your batteries and make memories that last a lifetime.

If you don’t have the budget to take a week-long vacation in another country, keep it simple and rent an Airbnb with some friends in a town nearby.

5. Have a Spa Day

A spa day is perhaps the most traditional way to treat yourself. This comes as no surprise, as you really can’t go wrong with a day at the spa.

To really treat yourself, we recommend booking a couple of services. Perhaps a massage with a facial? Or, a pedicure and manicure?

If you can’t afford a spa day out, throw one at home. Buy some Korean face masks, candles, and nail polish, and you’ll have everything you need to make a great spa day.
